Ahh, new love…it’s beautiful and intoxicating. And age doesn’t seem to be a factor as Russ and I can attest to you meeting each other later in life. We definitely fell into a ‘love fog’ and made some suspect decisions. I say suspect because we knew better yet we still made some ‘scratch your head’ choices.
When you’re in this stage no one can bring it to your attention. At least I would have been very defensive if someone did. We’re smart people. We knew better. Well, apparently, we didn’t know better because fast forward our ‘love fog’ and we ended up $90,000 in debt.
So not everyone in a ‘love fog’ ends up deep in debt but there are other debts you might entertain all for the sake of love.

So if you’re dating or engaged be bold, be courageous and watch the video and/or read the book. Seek out mentors. There are plenty of married couples who would be happy to share what they would do if they could do it all over again. Be brave and seek out wisdom.
The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps. -Proverbs 14:15
